A Disaster Preparedness Workshop will be held on Saturday,
September 7, in the Board of Supervisors meeting room at Hanover Courthouse.
The “Plan Safe” workshop will begin at 9 a.m. and conclude around noon.
When seconds count, being
prepared is critical. Your household may not be together in an emergency, so it
is important to plan in advance. Attend this highly interactive, three-hour
workshop to learn how to be better prepared as an individual or family.
Discussions will include how to make a household plan, build an emergency kit,
what items should be included, and the proper way to store the contents. The
workshop will also teach basic prevention or mitigation strategies that you can
do in your home to protect your household members and valuables.
This presentation is
intended for a broad array of audiences (aged 12 and over), including
individuals and families preparing their homes, businesses or non-profit
organizations looking to increase preparedness for their employees, or
community groups looking to improve the personal preparedness in neighborhoods
or service area. Each household will receive a free backpack upon completion of
